I love my Bengal, Amber, and I don't know anyone other than my breeder who has one!
She's a tiny cat at 8 pounds, however she had been a whopping 11 pounds before the vet put her on a diet! She'll eat anything in sight, just like a dog, if she can get her paws on it. We have to clean up dinner right away or we'll come back out to the kitchen and find her munching on a roll!
She's a thief, too. She steals anything she can get her mouth around and bring it downstairs to the basement and play with it. Her favorite things are cylindrical objects like Chap Stick, wine corks and the top of her list - a highlighter. DH uses a highlighter when he does the bills and we keep it in a cup on the computer desk along with other pens and pencils. She will get up on the desk and pull the highlighter out of the cup and take it downstairs. DH is always moving the downstairs couches to find his highlighter. DD has lost several lip glosses from her dresser.
She's also very sweet and is everywhere we are. I cannot spit out toothpaste without pushing her out of the way. I also have to close the bathroom door completely or I will always have company! She loves warmth and comfort, unlike our other cat Gracie who will sleep on tables and chairs. Amber will make a cave out of bedcovers and throw blankets and burrow in for hours. DH says she's a big baby! I call her my mini-leopard. She "stalks" Gracie, waiting around corners for her and pouncing and ambushing her. Gracie is not amused. She looks really cool with her black spots, which are even on her belly!
Anyone else have a Bengal? Anyone have another unusual breed that you love?
